Comments: Love how this turned out. Just perfect.
I've been searching for the perfect sculpting material, and
this cement is definitely it. The presence of the different
easily recognizable shapes adds a new dimension to the piece...
Sort of a "Where's Wingnut?" approach. Of course the biomechanical
aspects refer back to my insect sculptures.
